Health care services in United kingdom:

Health care expenditure as a share of GDP in the UK rose steadily from 6.5% in 1997 to 9.7% in 2009, and then fell to 9.2% in 2011, where it remained in 2012 .

The Economic Intelligence Unit estimates that spend as a percentage of GDP will increase to 9.6 percent in 2013.

While there is a general consensus that public funding will need to increase to keep pace with increasing demand from an aging and expanding population, estimates on the extent of funding growth vary widely.

One key factor influencing the likely size of the funding growth is likely to be the outcome of the May 2015 election. While political parties continue to support the idea of NHS health care free at the point of need, the differences between the parties is by how much and where the funding will come from.
